You probably recognize this cute couple because we’re doing things a little backwards with them. We got to catch up with Ben and Holly for a simple engagement session on New Years Eve and they said their vows two days later! So Monday’s blog post was their gorgeous winter wedding, and today is their sweet […]

The other night Aaron and I went over to his parent’s house and his sweet mama decided to break out the high school year book. Aaron went to a small Christian high school in Staunton, Virginia so his year book held every student- Kindergarten through 12th grade. My sweet hubby was all over those pages […]

Oh my goodness, gracious! Our 2015 wedding season is finished! I don’t think we knew what to expect when we looked at our calendar and saw fourteen wedding days. But we were uniquely blessed fourteen times but fourteen couples from May to December. It was amazing. When we first met Lauren and Derek for coffee, […]

It seems fitting that this is our ONE HUNDREDTH post!! Hurray! It’s been a dream year for us and we want to celebrate. I don’t say it’s been a dream year because it’s been all rainbows and daisies, because it hasn’t been, but because it’s been a year that we could have only dreamed up. […]

When we got Kelsey and Alex’s inquiry about an engagement session near Charlottesville we didn’t realize just how much this opportunity would end up meaning to us or just how small the world really is. Kelsey and I started exchanging emails and I found out that these two wanted to celebrate their engagement with a […]

King Family Vineyard: Kelsey + Alex’s Engagement Session

By the end of Kelsey and Ryan’s Blue Ridge Parkway engagement session, we felt like old friends. So much so that we called an audible and went out to dinner at Devil’s Backbone (one of our FAVORITES) so the party didn’t have to end! Once upon a time, we met each of our couples face-to-face […]

Shilla and Joon Ho’s Old Town Alexandria engagement session was so fun! Cobblestone streets, ivy covered alleyways, fountains in the square, the waterfront, and so much more. Aaron and I had never visited this area before so we owned the saying, ‘not all who wander are lost’. We wandered to our hearts content… and til […]

Old Town Alexandria, Virginia: Shilla + Joon Ho Engagement Session

Our fall has been FULL. Full of moving. Full of working full time. Full of traveling all over the state for engagement sessions. Full of a growing business. Full of ripping up carpet and other house renovations. FULL. But it hasn’t been too full to catch up with some of our favorite families. These are […]

Kostayne and Eric’s Roanoke Engagement session was a nice little hometown tour. Hometown because that’s where I grew up; tour because we make quite the circuit around town. We got to take in the beautiful Roanoke skyline, grab a quick drink in a local downtown spot, wander through the ginkgo trees, visit the famous Roanoke […]

Staunton is home to Tony and Lydia, so shooting their engagement session downtown was perfect. It was a little chilly when we met them at sunrise, but Tony kept Lydia laughing all morning and we heard no complaints. We wandered around some of our favorite spots and found some new favorites. Staunton is the sweetest […]
